Dope or Nope ...

Every alarm clock seems to have a snooze alarm. This allows the sleepy to get about 10 more minutes of shut-eye at a time ... Unfortunately, some people are habitual snooze alarm hitters. I had a college roommate who had a rock-and-roll chicken alarm clock ... which, unfortunately had a snooze button. My college roommate was a chronic snooze alarm abuser ... hitting the snooze button maybe 3 or 4 times a morning on average. He was an engineering student, so that meant he had early morning classes. Unfortunately for me, my roommate cared little that I didn't have a class until 10:00, and that I was still trying to sleep.

I guess that's why I hate the snooze alarm. I NEVER use it. The second the alarm rings, I'm up and out of bed, on my way to the shower. 10 extra minutes of sleep is not an enticing enough of a reason to hit the snooze button.

What about you? Do you like the snooze button?

Could not live without my snooze. I have a snooze bar that I can hit multiple times (2 hits = 20 min) to make a longer than 10 min snooze.

Hate it for ya - DOPE.

My snooze only gives 6 minutes, which is JUST ENOUGH time for me to nod back off, then it goes off again.

I really should hate it, but I don't.

I need scargosun's snooze.
